Return to Game from Menu Button??

#1 Post by Wendyd24 » Sun Dec 15, 2019 5:25 am

Hello again... Still at it, and I'm needing some more help. Sorry, but I searched everywhere else. :P

I've made a custom menu and it works just fine, but I'm not sure what to program to return to the game.

The question mark area is what I need filled in.

Code: Select all

screen menu:
    tag menu
    imagemap:
        idle "gui/menu.png"
        hover "gui/menuhover.png"

        hotspot (600,140,81,33) action ShowMenu('history')
        hotspot (595,211,92,38) action ShowMenu('save')
        hotspot (595,276,97,38) action ShowMenu('load')
        hotspot (508,357,268,40) action ShowMenu('preferences')
        hotspot (589,428,95,36) action ShowMenu('mainmenu')
        hotspot (537,617,204,50) action ????
Thanks for any help! Lemme know if this is in the wrong place or anything.

Of course :oops:

When I do that though, the scene reappears, but the text-box is gone. Any fixes?
